Borromini: The insufferable genius


Borromini: The insufferable genius

Borromini’s life was defined by his rivalry with Bernini. According to the latter “in architecture one should be guided by the human body, but Borromini must have been inspired by chimaeras.” Borromini’s work was admired by few and his personality by none. Even he seemed utterly unsatisfied with himself.
